The newest alpha for the Fallout 3 original total conversion is now on ModDB!

Posted by Entanglment on Jun 8th, 2009

The newest alpha for the Fallout 3 original TC is now on ModDB!

Grey Sky is an open world shooter inspired by GSC Gameworld's S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl. You explore the abandoned town of Clear Fortune, as you attempt to avoid the military presence there, figure out what caused the strange explosion in the center of town one year ago, and most of all, survive. Grey Sky implements many new gameplay features original to Fallout 3, including a new system of bleeding damage, a need to eat and sleep, an immersive HUDless health display, bizarre spatial anomalies, and a Commentary Mode system like the one found in Valve's The Orange Box.



Abandoned The town of Clear Fortune
Alone Street Sign

What to look for in the next release? For those of you too impatient to just be happy with this for now, next time you can expect expansion of the worldspace, addition of new locations, possibly addition of enemies and NPCs and the beginnings of Commentary Mode.

Don't forget to comment!

I would, I finished Fallout 3 in two days, I was about to uninstall it, but I decided to look for mods, now I've been playing for two months, and I have over 200 mods.

Did you? Cause his response was pretty valid if you did. Then again, you think Fallout 3 is a bad game so we can't entirely be sure of your mental stability can we?

@VAKinc Just because he dislikes fallout 3... you attack him?.. the hell man.

Look fallout 3 isn't the best game ever made, its mediocre, it has a terrible story but the gameplay makes up for it- Modders alone have made the game soo much better than the original developers had done prior (which just proves how terrible Bethesda are at making good games, but good at developing editors for others to take a crack at it.)- I enjoy what the mod community is producing more than what bethesda has done.. so his comments are justifiable.

There's no need to flame because he didn't like the game. I hate fanbois.

I don't dislike Fallout 3, that's the funny part. I dislike this mod, so I told the guy I wouldn't recommend buying Fallout 3 just to play it.

I mean don't get me wrong, the idea is great, but the mod is nowhere near complete.

It looks good, but I don't know why on earth you would a game JUST for this. I mean it looks good, but not 50 DOLLARS good. if you don't like the game you're buying, then don't buy it b/c u see ONE free mod that comes out for it. really now. use some common sense

Yeah, that was also on my mind. Maybe they could use the ruined buildings in that city where all the flame ants are, there are some structures that do look abondoned but still have a roof and walls etc and are not completely destroyed. The mod sounds good btw.

yea they need to ring the housing agency for sure.... unless the road is on council property. that might explain the difference in upkeep !

Well... It's not like I'm gonna buy fallout 3 ( again ) only for this mod.

Let me start off by saying: "You can make it look good, only by words". It means; you make it the way you say it. And with that I mean: You have made a good trailer, but i does not show us anyting then you walking around this 300 x 300 m field with some houses, road signs, trees and green grass. Don't know if it's just me, but that does not tell me a squat.

What i recomend is ( I will admit I do not often make mods for fallout; so therefor i dont know how to do this and dont ask me... ):

Make some new roads ( flatter and smaller )

Make the terrain more ruffer ( Ex: Small hilltops for the houses and some random errosions around ) PS: Look like to me that you are covering this up by putting alot of grass into the mod...

If you are thinking BIG, you can make disticts ( like one that is totally ruined, half destroyed and still standing ( Whith this I can say that all of the houses look like the same )

And last: A new sky ( night and day ). "why" do you think? Trust me, it will make the mod look more... "personlized".

PPS: I know it's a alpha, but you wanted comments; now you get.

My friend off-loaded Fallout 3 on me for my birthday because he hated it.
God knows I hated it more than he ever could. :P
This mod here might just make me stop using the disk as a coaster.
